The Magic Elixir of Health with Plant-Based Dietitian Julieanna Hever (vegan), Part 1 of 2

Across medical fields worldwide, more health practitioners are turning to the plant-based diet solution to help people to improve their wellness and treat diseases. Among them, is Julieanna Hever, a registered dietitian from the United States. She is the author of four books, has published two peer-reviewed medical journal articles, and is the nutrition columnist for VegNews Magazine. Her powerful TEDx talk impacted hundreds of thousands of viewers. “I just so passionate about nutrition and I loved it. And I found out, wow, you can actually get protein better from plants, and you can get a better source of iron from plants, and all of those questions that I was concerned about previously, I was completely satisfied and completely comfortable to switch myself over to a plant-based diet. And then I started implementing it with my clients and the differences in their results were literally night and day.” “Everyone feels better eating a plant-based diet. They notice a quicker recovery, so it’s a wonderful way to boost your performance naturally without any supplements or substances and it’s just a really healthy way.” “It’s a tome of facts and we synthesized a lot of information in our ‘Idiot’s Guide to Plant-Based Nutrition.’ So, it’s really like all the whys and all the hows in an easy, digestible book.”

Saving the Gran Chaco Forest with Fiorella Migliore

Saving the Gran Chaco Forest with Fiorella Migliore

In today’s program, we will introduce Fiorella Migliore, a Paraguayan model, beauty queen, actress, television presenter and vegan activist. Fiorella, or Fio, won the 2008 Miss Italia Paraguay and the 2012 Miss World Paraguay. Learning about the direct impact of our food choice on the environment and health first-hand, Fio felt obliged to raise awareness about it to her fellow Paraguayans, so she partnered with Kip Anderson to produce a documentary, From Paraguay With Love. Paraguay With Love focuses on the environmental and humanitarian crisis happening in Paraguay due to “The Green Revolution,” Which is the rapid expansion of soy agri-faming in the Gran Chaco Forest, the second largest forest in South America next to the Amazon. Fio hopes to educate the public on their food choices, which has caused the deforestation of Paraguay, and has forced more than 585,000 people to leave their land in the last ten years. Also, the health-hazards of pesticides have caused many serious diseases, and even deaths. We are hopeful that Fio’s message will be heard and that it will create a ripple effect on farming, as more farmers are switching from livestock raising to organic vegetable farming, not only in Paraguay but all around the world.

And the biggest thing any of us can do is to adopt a vegan lifestyle.” In parting, we would like to invite you to enjoy a song rendered by Keegan, named “For the Innocent.” “With the callus of a slaughterhouse worker, For the billions senselessly murdered, I am vegan. I am vegan for the innocent.”

Brooklyn Borough President, Mr. Eric Adams, and a Plant-Based NYC, Part 2 of 2

Brooklyn Borough President, Mr. Eric Adams, and a Plant-Based NYC, Part 2 of 2

Meatless Mondays is only the beginning. Mr. Adams has a much bigger vision for the youth, for his city, and for the world. “There's no reason we cannot have rooftop gardens in all of our schools, while children can grow their food and then serve it down in their cafeteria. We need to get all meat out of our schools; all cheese, all dairy products, all milk out of the schools. I think it’s so important that we engage in the real conversation about climate change and not try to sugarcoat the issue. The real culprit is overconsumption of meat, the overconsumption of beef. We were successful here in New York City, where we got processed meat out of our schools and a 50% beef reduction, but we need to go further. We’re saving not only Molly the cow but Dolly our child.” He also saw that community support is an important factor for success in the transition to a plant-based diet. “Building the community is so important. That is why every three months, we hold a vegan, plant-based meet-up here at Borough Hall, where several hundred people come out and they interact with each other. They talk with each other.

Brooklyn Borough President, Mr. Eric Adams, and a Plant-Based NYC, Part 1 of 2

Mr. Adams transformed from being a type 2 diabetic to being healthy, fit and vibrant, through a whole-foods, plant-based diet. “I’m the Brooklyn Borough president in New York City. I always exercised but my diet was horrendous.” Mr. Adams’s food choices led to some serious health problems. “And when I started that diet, in three weeks, my vision returned. And after three months, my diabetes went in remission, my nerve damage went away, my cholesterol normalized. I had a small ulcer, the ulcer went away. And all of this without medicine. And not only does it help you physically, but it also helps you emotionally and spiritually as well.” When Mr. Adams saw the dramatic, positive improvements in his health and well-being, he wanted to share the goodness with his family and with his community. One of the steps the Borough President took was to introduce Meatless Mondays into schools. Eventually the program expanded to all New York City schools. “The end goal is to wean us off of the over-consumption of meat, that we have in this country and across the globe.”

Emma Hurst – Unequivocal Voice for the Animals, Part 2 of 2

Once elected to Parliament, the Honorable Emma Hurst presented a powerful inaugural speech that has been applauded by people around the world. “My promise to the animals is this: You have all of me. The lioness in the circus, I see you. The pig in the sow stall, I see you. The mouse in the medical experimentation facility, I see you. The fish crushed at the bottom of a trawler net, I see you. I know you’re suffering, and I will never be silent. I will push forward, no matter what life throws my way, because the cruelties inflicted on you must end, and I will do all I can to see that happen.” Ms. Hurst’s inaugural speech has touched many people’s hearts and has inspired audiences worldwide to be courageous and motivated to march on the path of compassion and veganism. We, as a society, are ultimately responsible for the ways in which we treat all cohabitants. To that end, Emma is a proponent of transparency within the animal industries. And the more Ms. Hurst speaks candidly about the plight of animals everywhere, the more people are sitting up and taking notice, even those who seem unlikely to do so.

The Honorable Emma Hurst is a member of the Australian state of New South Wales’ Legislative Council where she uses this platform to tirelessly campaign for animal protection reform and animal rights. Ms. Hurst is also a long time vegan, plant-based bodybuilder and a registered psychologist. “I didn’t want to kill animals. I had no idea that even eating organic or free-range eggs, meant that all day-old male chicks in the egg industry would be macerated. And that in the dairy industry, that calves will be torn away from their mothers and taken to slaughterhouses. When I read all this information, it was just like the lights switched on, and I just went vegan overnight. I worked for Animal Liberation for over a decade. I’ve also worked for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). And I decided that it was really people that needed to change, not animals.” Supreme Master Ching Hai: “Joyfully present The Honorable Emma Hurst the Shining World Leadership Award for Compassion, with all love, a big hug and best wishes, in Heaven’s grace. May you and all your supporters forever be in God’s favor.”

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 2 of 2

Kind-hearted viewers, welcome to join us today for our 2nd episode on Kuntal Joisher, a persistent man who is a software engineer by profession, a mountaineer by passion and a vegan by compassion. “At the same time, it’s not as if I wanted to become the first vegan in the world to climb Mt. Everest. The idea was to just climb Everest as a vegan, and to demonstrate to the world that even the tallest and toughest mountains in the world can be climbed on a vegan diet, and by wearing vegan clothing. I want veganism to be the normal way of life across the entire planet, and that’s the vision behind all my projects. So many spiritual gurus across the world, and they talk about compassion, but I think, unless compassion comes on your plate, it’s never true compassion. So, really happy about Supreme Master and the entire movement, and really happy to have Loving Hut existing in the world.”

Kuntal Joisher - The First Vegan on the Top of the World, Part 1 of 2

Today we are sharing the achievements and successes of a courageous and noble man, Mr. Kuntal Joisher, the world’s first vegan to scale Mt. Everest. His climbing journey of the Himalayas started in 2009. With his persistent determination and fortitude, Mr. Kuntal stood on the top of Mt. Everest, the highest peak in the word, in May, 2016, from the Nepal side and again successfully in 2019, from the China side. “Sitting here right now, it’s almost been seventeen years that I have now been a vegan. And I have to tell you, that this was the best decision I have ever made in my life, because since that day I have been able to sleep every single night peacefully, knowing that o animals had to be killed for me to lead my life or me to pursue my dreams. It was a chance encounter in 2009, where I actually found that climbing mountains was the calling of my life. Mt. Everest simply cannot be conquered. It is always the mountain that decides whether you are going to make it to the top. So, it was during this journey, that I overcame so many of my self-doubts, so many of my limitations, and I conquered myself.”

Serving the World without Harming Other Beings – Farmer Sivalingam Vasanthakumar, Part 2 of 2

Although the decision not to send his sheep for slaughter has cost him almost £10,000 in lost earnings, Kumar has no regrets and has peace of mind. Being aware of climate change, Kumar decided that, along with changing his business from animal livestock farming to organic vegetable growing, he would also change his diet. “At the moment, I am a vegetarian. I am in the process of becoming a vegan.” “It’s only a small farm, but I think if we all do a little bit, little bit, we will make a big impact on the planet’s ecosystem.” “But it will change, because now we’re seeing climate change, that evidence coming up that livestock farming is causing, creating a lot of carbon emission and so, the farming system has to change.” In closing, Kumar expresses his love for all beings. “From my heart, I would like to tell everybody that every life matters on this planet. So, let’s not destroy them. Look after them, nurture them; they are precious. The planet is precious for us. Let’s be kind to all living beings.”

Serving the World without Harming Other Beings – Farmer Sivalingam Vasanthakumar, Part 1 of 2

Kumar was born in Sri Lanka and spent his childhood working on the family dairy farm. He has since worked on various livestock farms, and in 2010 set up his own sheep farm in Devon. Although Kumar liked his career, he could not bear the pressure involved in the process of taking his animals to the slaughterhouse. Once his daughter, a livestock veterinarian, asked him what he planned to do with his lambs, he decided on the spot to end the animal farming he had been doing for 30 plus years. “And I said to Molly: ‘No, that is the end of it. I would not take them to the slaughterhouse. I need to find a sanctuary for them.’ which was a great relief for me.” “So, there’s no regret at all. It was a wonderful thing I have done.” He keeps 70 ewes for himself as pets and enjoys the joy and peace this brings knowing he’s made the right decision. “And also, it’s time for all of us to do something for the planet and for climate change and eat more vegetables and make sure that this planet is there for our future generations.”

And everything that I did was just to think about, ‘It's going to do good for the animals or not?’”

Ms. Gilboa has become a celebrity at home and abroad through her numerous initiatives for bringing awareness of raising animal livestock and for encouraging everyone to adopt veganism. As one of the most influential animal-rights activists and key resource on veganism, Tal Gilboa was appointed as the Animal-Rights Advisor to the Prime Minister of Israel. Witnessing the ordeal of a mother cow served as a key moment for Tal Gilboa. She reflected on how best to honor a parent’s responsibility to children in terms of clear and honest education regarding animals. “And what I did was to take them all, the three of them, to farms. I wanted them to to watch the truth. Now I could say the truth to them by my knowledge, the calves are in these little cages, because they’re separated from their mothers. This is what I did and they changed because of that." Tal Gilboa's noble example and bold actions have reached farther than her whole family's turining vegan; she has also influenced many others within her country.

The Vivacious Vegan Ambassador, Jane 'Unchained' Velez-Mitchell, Part 3 of 3

On today's program, Jane shares her thoughts about how our dietary choices affect our mental wellbeing. She believes that a vegan lifestyle contributes to happiness, while meat consumption can lead to depression. Jane says we can do many things to promote the healthier, happier vegan lifestyle. For example, whenever fast food chains, restaurants, or stores introduce new plant-based products, Jane and her team actively support them. Jane and her volunteer contributors continually seek more ways to promote the vegan lifestyle. They have recently expanded through conducting live interviews with experts, and through music. "There are too many things that we can do every single day to move us toward our goal of a compassionate cruelty free, plant-based world. Supreme Master TV, we are a peaceful force that will change the world! That is changing the world. Carry on! Double down!"

Jane Velez-Mitchell’s enthusiasm in spreading the vegan message is inspirational. Her website, Jane Unchained, now reaches more than one million people. Jane and her team of volunteer contributors use every possible social platform to promote vegan living. “This is a crucial time. Every single person who wants to save this planet, go on social media every time you eat a vegan meal, put it on Instagram, go live on Facebooks. We need to flood social media with vegan content and normalize non-violence, and normalize non-violence, normalize veganism, normalize a compassionate lifestyle.” “We just finished a documentary called, ‘Countdown to Year Zero!’ Everybody needs to see ‘Countdown to Year Zero.’ It is the most important subject. If the world is uninhabitable for humans, it’s too hot to support human life, all the other issues will pale. And the solution is simply to eliminate the meat and dairy from our diet. It is the leading cause of climate change.”
